Help required to find information on Ada Webb

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Virginia Report 19 Dec 2012 22:07

I am trying to find my Father’s sister Ada Webb.
Ada Webb born 18Aug1907 to George Henry Wiseman Webb and Ada Baynham in Poolton cum Seacombe, Birkenhead.
George Henry Webb (my father) born 27May1909 in BARKING Essex.
The 1911 census shows all 4 living at 13 Stanley Rd Ilford with 3 other unknown people.
William Edward Webb was born 28Oct1911 in BARKING Essex (I have found living relatives from his children who can shed no light on Ada Webb)
Frederick Thomas Webb was born 26Jan1913 in BARKING Essex. He died on 1-Apr-1939 in 109 Aukland Rd, Ilford, having not married.
George Henry Wiseman Webb died on 19Oct1915
My father told me very little about his childhood but I am led to believe that he and his brothers were brought up in a care home in Romford area after his father died. His sister Ada was put in a separate care home for girls. I have contacted some of the local care homes in the Romford area without success.
I have found records of marriages and deaths for Ada Webb in the Romford area but certificates have proved negative
I am now hoping that someone may be able to find more information on my father’s sister Ada

Have you looked to see if anyone on here has her in their tree?


brummiejan Report 19 Dec 2012 22:47

There is an Ancestry tree which might be worth a look. It has an Ada D. Webb, born 1907 Lancashire but marrying in Romford.
They have a different 1911 census for her (in St. Helens), but having said that have not put her parents on their tree.
Probably a red herring, but the locations struck me as quite a co-incidence. Might be worth contacting the tree-owner if only to exclude her.

Have checked for possible marriages using the names above, but can't see anything. She may, of course have died before the full date of birth shows on the death records, but it was worth a try.


Catherine Report 19 Dec 2012 23:04

this looks to be a possible marriage that would fit with the ancestry tree:-

Marriages Mar 1930 (>99%)
Webb Ada D Cutmore Romford 4a 639
Cutmore George W Webb Romford 4a 639

One possible birth to this marriage:-
Births Sep 1930 (>99%)
CUTMORE Peter L H Webb Romford 4a 938

................and there is also a death that would fit:-

England & Wales, Death Index, 1916-2006 about Ada Cutmore

Birth Date: abt 1908
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1936
Age at Death: 28

I recieved the marriage certificate for Ada Webb and George Cutmore. It is interesting but not decisive.Some things do not tie up but others do. Am hoping I can find a match on other ancestry web sites. Thank you for your help


.............will ask Virginia to post info from the cert. onto her thread.
